at sandy hook elementary school. 20 -- 20 beautiful first graders gunned down in a place that's supposed to be their second sanctuary. six -- six members of the staff killed trying to save those children. it's literally been hard for the nation to comprehend, hard for the nation to fathom. and i know for the families who are here, time is not measured in days but it's measured in minutes, in seconds since you received that news. another minute without your daughter, another minute without your son, another minute without your wife, another minute without your mom. i want to personally thank chris and lynn mcdonald who lost a beautiful daughter, grace, and the other parents who i had a chance to speak to, for their suggestions and for, again, just for their -- the courage of all of you to be here today. i admire -- i admire the grace and the resolve that you all are showing. i must say i have been deeply affected by your faith as well. and the president and i are going to do everything we can to try to match the resolve you've demonstrated. no one can know for certain if this senseless ac
of representatives. and the answer to that question is really in a painting by grace mcdonnell, a 6-year-old sandy hook victim whose dad gave the president a piece of her artwork >> obama: i think about grace. i think about the life that she lived. and the life that lay ahead of her. and most of all, i think about how when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now. >> jennifer: for grace, this fight is worth waging. and for her this fight may even be worth losing in the short term anyway. because while the president might be able to squeak out an unsatisfying victory a small and ugly bill riddled with loopholes and signifying nothing, perhaps in this instance, the better course is to wage the big fight to stand strong over banning assault rifles. even when you know you're not going to get the votes in congress because it is a noble cause. because it is better to lose with grace than to win ugly. because every day the extremists froth about saddam hussein and king obama and impeachment over a rational ban on assault rifles. they make the case to most everyday americans th
his mother's weapons. one of the proposals out of what i released yesterday, the sandy hook principles. when you walk into a video store or an electronics store, you buy a dvd player, they immediately offer you the two- year warranty. when you walk into a gun store, after the background check, which everyone should go to, they should also offer you a gun law. -- a gun lockor ask if you have a gun locker in your house or business where this will be stored? that should be a part of the sale. that is the only person who should be able to get access to that weapon. we know the technology exists. you can make guns in such a way that only the legitimate owner and operator can operate at a weapon. that would cut down tremendously on the fact that, in my city and many others, you can rent guns across the city. you walk in and they sell you an array of weapons. you put your weapon. you put your money down. you do whatever it is you do and you bring it back. they know who you are. guns circulate. they are already there. we in pennsylvania have of the weaker laws. in place that you have tougher l
attention this focus and this demand for action really was triggered -- prompted by what happened at sandy hook elementary school where 20 innocent first graders were mowed down. in ten minutes some of them shot as many as 11 times. if we're talking about saving kids' lives and you've got four kids who wrote to the president and said please do something in the wake of this, i think it was totally appropriate for the president. >> absolutely. >> bill: bring them on stage yesterday. >> that's what i think separates them from a lot of other kinds of -- >> bill: speaking of exploiting children, then you have the nra -- so the head of the nra, talking about the ad of course, talked about it yesterday here on the show. i want to play it one more time because david keen, the president of the nra is out today defending the ad again and saying oh, no, we weren't talking about the president's daughters when we made that ad. let's listen to it. see if you can believe this buffoon. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schoo
and horrified by the news of the shooting at sandy hook elementary school in newtown, connecticut. 20 children, six teachers and educators were taken from us at gun point. an act of senseless and incomprehensible violence struck at the heart of our families, of our schools, of our communities across the country. earlier this month shortly after newtown, all members of congress took an oath to protect and defend the constitution and the american people. to protect and defend, that is our first responsibility. today leaders of the house democratic caucus have come together to fulfill that duty to confront the challenge of gun violence in our society to enact, to ensure the safety and security of our communities. under the leadership of congressman thomson, mike thompson, our gun violence prevention task force keeps growing in number. our colleagues are submitting recommendations for legislation, the task force is working with outside organizations, and sharing the latest information on gun violence and steps we can take and must take to end it. today to strengthen the efforts of this task force

this discussion, i'll just tell you one very personal anecdote. three days before the sandy hook shooting, i was in denver, colorado, on personal business. and i was driving through the denver suburbs, and i passed into aurora rah, colorado, and saw the sign and thought to myself -- as journalists often do -- oh, my god, this just disappeared from our landscape. it happened not that long ago in which a young man, now appears to be utterly deranged, b went into a movie theater and began shooting down people with an assault weapon. and it went away. the not part of the presidential debate, it was not part of the fabric of our lives, it was not part of the daily journalistic diet. so on that wednesday night i e-mailed the producer of the "meet the press" show that was coming up on that sunday in which they would be talking about big ideas that america needs to be thinking about. and i said you should put shooting at the top of the list. we have been through aurora, the sikh temple, the oregon shopping mall, think about this, this is before we got to sandy hook. in newtown. we'd had a time of ab

sandy hook massacres, you're going to have more sandy storms, like the superstorm sandy. this president has not done enough on climate. and it's always number three to him. i think 20 years from now it's going to be number one on the assessment of his legacy. i think he's got to step up to the plate. one thing he hasn't done and nobody has put forward yet, he could call for a bilateral summit with china on climate. the two biggest carbon polluters have never sat down and talked. i think he's got to be bold on immigration, he's bold on guns. if he can get bold on climate he would be a transformational president. >> bold on five things? >> if anybody can do it, barack obama can do it. >> thanks, we appreciate it. ahead, we'll talk to cyndi lauper. she's a political activist. we'll talk to her ahead about her role. that's in the next hour. stay with us. you're watching our special inauguration coverage here on cnn. officemax can help you drive supply costs down... and down. use your maxperks card and get a 10-ream case of officemax multiuse paper for just 4.99 after maxperks rewards. find

for superstorm sandy. the relief package was passed by the senate even though house speaker john boehner hadn't brought it up for a vote. in fact, the senate passage helped to put pressure on the house. sandy relief passed in the house with a minority of republican votes and almost every democrat. speaker boehner would not have brought the bill to the floor if it hadn't already been passed in the senate. there was similar pressure with the fiscal cliff deal. it passed in the senate first. then boehner was forced to bring it to the floor for a vote and the house, even though only a minority of republicans supported it. today senator majority leader harry reid seemed to clarify his position somewhat. in a statement he said, "i am committed to ensuring the senate will consider legislation that addresses gun violence and other aspects of violence in our society early this year. all options should be on the table." well, that sounds a little bit better. but there should be no hedging on this issue whatsoever. especially from democrats. because if they side with the president of the united states t

the horrific mass murder of children and faculty at sandy hook elementary in connecticut there were many pledges of thoughtful and thorough efforts to prevent such atrocities. supposedly, everything would be on the table, not just access to firearms by criminals or mentally deranged people, but the mental health care system shall the role of violence in hollywood television and video games. and it was also going to be an honest review of possible changes in the law that would be based on hard data, not just the political agenda of one side. well, so much for that. as many of us feared, there will be no executive orders or proposed legislation that might rile the president's hollywood pals. none of the legislation proposed so far is really about comprehensive mental health care reform. it's all about firing up the same old plans from the left, to pass new laws that will limit the freedoms of citizens who haven't broken any laws. emotional rational has been, as the president said this week, if there's even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if there's even one life that can be sa

[applause] the servicemen and women and the veterans and their families were here with us this morning are living monuments to that service. their commitment to serve, their willingness to volunteer should be inspiration and is an inspiration to me and it should be to you and i know it is. in spite of all the talk of how divided we are as a nation, how we are as a country, more and more americans are coming together to serve each other every day. volunteers in america is at a five-year high. in 2011, americans spent 8 billion hours giving back to their communities, enough hours to build the entire state building more than a thousand times over. [cheers and applause] you represent that. you're organizing food drives, mentoring children from the building playgrounds and so much more. when i look out and see you all and the kids here today, your service is having an even greater impact because you're in selling what my wife and i and brother and sister-in-law and my sister and brother-in-law are trying to do with our kids,
of sandy, the heels of last year's draught was one of the worst in our country's history going back to the dust bowl, you'd think there would be wind sailing in the right direction. >> that's right. he's putting something in the agenda that wasn't. we already had the pipeline to capitol hill so clogged. these three new fiscal cliffs coming up, gun control, energy infrastructure. he's putting this at the head of the line. immigration actually and even gun control got very little attention here. he mentioned newtown but only in passing. >> so do you think he held some stuff back for the state of the union? >> definitely. the state of the union will be more a blue print, a road map, but here he's talking for history. over the years this president has rightly been criticized for not telling his own narrative, for not putting out a frame, for not connecting his own dots, telling his own story. here was the president doing it. he's writing the history book for himself. this is what he wants the history books to say about barack obama. >> mike allen, president it, as always. see you soon o

this other story, there's been a lot of discussion about guns in schools, and guns in general after the sandy hook sad situation in december in connecticut. and now there's a kindergarten girl who apparently owns one of these little devices, you look at the screen at hello kitty bubble gun. apparently, she was talking about this toy at school. it's my understanding she actually didn't even have the toy with her at the mt. carmel area school in pennsylvania. as a result of just talking about shooting bubbles at one another, apparently she received a ten-day suspension. it was reduced to two days, but that's kind of unclear now whether or not she should even have faced any kind of suspensi suspension. >> steve: well, this is kind of crazy the two five-year-old girls were waiting at the bus, hey, i'm going to shoot you with my hello kitty bubble machine and somebody overheard it and next thing you know, just because people are, you know, freaked out about guns since sandy hook, the school got involved. and she was suspended for ten days, and then reduced it to two. but she was also given, becaus
too late. >> sandy kabealo was confident but a little nervous. confident she was doing the right thing by getting a shot. but a bit uneasy because this was the first time, she has ever gotten a shot. >> ofjust never did it before. but with this season, and i work with elderly people it was the right thing to do. i think it won't hurt, and she was not the only one getting a shot. but throughout the day, there was a steady line of people coming into this pleasanton safeway to get the vaccine. for some - it was just a matter of timing. but with the season kicking into high gear, tehy all told kron four that they wanted to make sure tyhey got the shot before getting sick. i am heading back east. so i definitely want to be prepared. >> teresa estacio, kron 4 news >> we will have a sneak peek of what is at the movies. this live look outside. a beautiful view of the sunrise from mount tam. for over 60,000 california foster children, nights can feel long and lonely. i miss my sister. i miss my old school. i miss my room. i don't want special treatment. i just wanna feel normal. to help, sleep
people turned out in connecticut to decide the fate of sandy hook elementary. those who turned out said they don't believe classes should be held in the building where 26 were killed last month. >> my kids went there we have great memories, but i am also friends with some who lost children and i am feeling their situation as well. i don't feel i am one to be making that decision. >> the officials have reached out to the officials at columbine as well for advice. >>> the journal news printed the names and addresses of gun permit holders living just north of new york city. the editors say that this sent a powerful message. >>> redwood city police are asking for the public's help to identity a suspected arsonist. the man was caught on video just before the fire broke out which caused about $50,000 in damage. the sus sect has a thin mustache and wearing a cap with earflaps. >>> an anti-graffiti task force is cracking down on graffiti in the city. >> right after the giants won the world series, we had an explosion of graffiti. >> officials are encouraging the use of community murals instead.
